for investment dollars you can afford to gamble with....

Any wirehouse or proprietary brokerage or insurer....who comes out and fully recommends stock or commonidty X, then your que is X should be a security your should short, which is to say, do exactly the opposite of what they recommend. The logic here is pretty easy. These 3rd parties are not there to enlighten, educate or advise you. They are there to get you to buy or sell something that will, it the collective, benefit their position.. If the security were really poised to increase in value, the last person they would be sharing this with is you. They would be keeping it to themselves or their high net worth clients who pay them. You are not paying them.
